This is a beautiful story that uses the Lord's Prayer as its words. The illustrations tell the story of a man and his daughter helping an elderly lady repair her fence and clean up her yard. It is a wonderful illustration of what it means to be a Christian. The prayer fits the situation perfectly.
I love the visual representation of the Lord's Prayer. The text of the book is the Lord's Prayer but the pictures portray what it looks like to live according to the prayer. The images, which are superb, urge kids and adults to think creatively about the meaning of the prayer.

Wow. Just ... wow. The illustrations are just like the cover (which is to say, vibrant and moving), and the story (told via pictures) fits the prayer, but not too closely.
